What You Want in a Home Alarm System
Get Smarter Security for Your Las Vegas Property
In one of our first blogs about security and surveillance, we talked about the added intelligence that has come to home security. While the simple sensor and alarm types of systems still exist and are used by many people, smart home technology has added many new capabilities and controls that go far beyond the old solutions.
Internet connectivity, smart cameras, multi-purpose smart sensors, smart locks, and cloud-based services that aggregate security information and monitoring are revolutionizing the ways you can secure your property. As a home security monitoring and alarm system company based in Las Vegas since 1986, Eagle Sentry decades of experience in the home protection and peace of mind business.
We bring up peace of mind because it’s an important point. You want two things from your home security system and the company that provides it: One, that your home is being watched and protected. Two, should the unexpected happen you have the tools and the support to act on and take care of the situation. Eagle Sentry has partnered with the latest technology companies and services to continue to deliver state-of-the-art protection to homeowners in Las Vegas.
In this blog, we’d like to highlight two of the newer smart security systems we work with - Interlogix and Alarm.com. Read on to learn more!

Interlogix Smart Security
Interlogix is a comprehensive system that combines smart home security with home automation. For home security control panels, their repertoire includes wired and wireless models that provide additional flexibility in placement. The control panels range from self-contained hubs like the UltraSync which can connect with smart locks, lights, and other devices, and is controllable and programmable through a web browser. Other UltraSync models feature easy touchscreen controls that make it easy to check the status of any part of the system, make it easy to arm and disarm your alarms, and can even do so automatically based on your location through your smartphone.
We previously mentioned wireless sensors and how many things can be monitored in your home than ever before. Interlogix wireless sensors feature flood and freeze detection, motion sensors that filter out pet movements, shock sensors, garage door sensors, and more. Through the UltraSync system, a smartphone app can keep you in the know with the status of every sensor, camera, and lock in your smart home.
Alarm.com is a complete security ecosystem designed to keep you in control of your home at all times. Alarm.com works with many of today’s popular smart devices and home automation systems. If you’ve ever had to give a guest or service-provider temporary access to your home, then you will appreciate controls like conditional codes that can be given to users that you can enable and disable easily through the smartphone app. You can also see a complete history of who has armed and disarmed your alarm system.
Alarm.com systems retain protection even when power, cable, and broadband communications are out. It uses a tamper-resistant cellular connection to maintain contact with the Alarm.com cloud service, and can continue to keep you informed of what’s happening.
Another smart feature is using intelligence to learn your home’s activity patterns. When your devices like alarms, garage doors, and door locks are linked through Alarm.com, if the system detects an unusual activity - like your front door being opened during the day when typically no one is there - you can get an immediate alert to take action. You can even have your security camera triggered to see what is going on, right on your smartphone wherever you are.
